Contact as many in that sound. Video games, being a part of human culture, too, I hope sooner or later to meet the brothers on reason. Even if the meeting would be disastrous, as in DOOM, XCOM, Half-Life, Prey, or Destiny. Agree, not the last game, and they Express not the most trifling interest of our species. Therefore, the search for extraterrestrial intelligence do not only the characters of the popular media and cranks in the tin foil hat, but the light of science. On the occasion of the release of Destiny 2 and War of the Chosen for XCOM 2 remember how it was.
The first in the history of science fiction describes contacts with aliens. Talking about the story of Somnium (1608) written by astronomer Johannes Kepler. He mentally flew to the moon, where he met demons and intelligent snake-like creatures. Vipers?
In the late nineteenth century the physicist Nikola Tesla first proposed to contact an extraterrestrial civilization with the help of electronic equipment. However, it was about Martians, which, as we already know, does not exist.
In 1960 started the first experience in the framework of the SETI project (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence "the Search for extraterrestrial intelligence"). Using a 26-meter radio telescope, Frank Drake studied Tau Ceti and Epsilon Eridani, where he searched for signs of intelligent life.
SETI is one of the most ambitious scientific projects in history, comparable in cost of money, labor and time with the decoding of the human DNA or the mission of the ISS. In this case the expected results it gave. But great advanced science.
A base SETI has gained a cult status — for example, the telescope's giant in Arecibo, which you can see in the movie "Contact" or shooter Battlefield 4 on the map "rogue transmission". And the objects of study it seems that Tau Ceti has become a fetish of science fiction.
In 1967 Jocelyn bell discovered a signal which was taken as evidence of extraterrestrial intelligence. The data is then coded, and the object was named LGM-1 (Little Green Men "little green men"). But it turned out that bell discovered the pulsar.
The most serious candidate for a message from extraterrestrials — so-called "Wow signal", adopted August 15, 1977 a radio telescope "Big ear" in Ohio. The signal source is located in the constellation of Sagittarius, and its nature is not clear so far.
Exactly 40 years ago, humanity sent a message possible reason outside of our system together with the probe "Voyager-1". To the Board is attached a plate of gold, designed to be read by aliens.
On the Golden records of Voyager caused the characters testifying to the intelligence of the inhabitants of the Earth, as well as audio recordings of greetings in different languages. Including — in Russian and Ukrainian. Listen to them and feel like "little green men".
Voyager gave a snapshot of the Earth taken from 6 billion kilometers and became the first man-made object left the Solar system. Whether he will meet someone on your way?
